Northern Mockingbird?


Recommended Posts

Taken April 13 at Huntington Library and Botanical Garden in San Marino, CA.

Forwarded from a friend who actually took them and was present. She had no idea.

It was drinking water or nectar from a Puya flower. House finches were doing the same.

Doesn't seem like typical behavior, but I am going with a northern mockingbird that has gotten pollen all over its face.

The second photo seals it for me. The first one is just VERY ODD.

I can't imagine what else it could be? Orioles are common there, too, but coloration seems wrong for a female oriole.
